Congratulations, My Friend

The thing about monumental moments is that the world keeps on spinning in inexplicable fashion while you're having one.  It's just a Tuesday, but somewhere someone is becoming a Mama for the first time.  It's just a Saturday, but somewhere a soldier is stepping off a plane into her family's arms.  It's just a Wednesday, but you got that long-awaited phone call and everything is going to be okay. 

Today is just a Thursday, but my friend Lauren and her Bill are getting married today at Manhattan's City Hall.  People will be at work, the city will be a blur, and the world will still be spinning, but Lauren is going to stand still, hold her love's hands in the middle of this day, say her vows, hear them said to her.  There's something so beautiful, romantic, and perfect about that.

Bill's job is sending him to London very soon and they need to make it legal for visa purposes.  They'll be coming back and doing the "real" wedding in the Fall.

But today, this day, begins their marriage, their lives and adventures together.  Today is not just a Thursday. 

I'm so over the moon for you, Whits. 

Happy Thursday.

We had such a wonderful day. I was truly amazed how romantic and special city hall turned out to be. Then tons of friends joined us to toast and drink the night away. Truly blessed. Thanks buddy! :)
